  • The relief area must not be nearer the hole than the reference point (spot of the ball) and MUST be in the same bunker. 
  • The relief area must not be improved in any way (ie. by smoothing with foot or any other equipment before the ball is replaced). 

Penalty for playing a ball from the wrong place OR smoothing sand before placing the ball: General penalty (2 strokes).

 

HOLING OUT – A ball is considered “holed” if it is resting on an object in place to prevent the ball from falling to the bottom of the cup even if the ball is not completely resting below the surface of the ground.

LIVE SCORING: If available, players will allow volunteers to take a photograph of their scorecard. 

 

SCORING AREA

Players should keep both scores on the scorecard as normal.

Scores will be certified in the following way:

Our live event competitions are a means for men and women to take advantage of hard to come by support. Our events are driven by intentional investment that covers the risk of MGPs, Choice Entry & ROE, operational costs. This is all in an effort to provide players a BETTER solution than what has been present to date. Our partners have invested over $3MM directly into players through our events and this investment will continue as it benefits the company’s vision and mission for its SwingThought platform. Players are solely responsible for their behavior on-course and on-screen. Any inappropriate behavior that compromises SwingThought and the opportunity for players, courses and partners is subject to fine or banishment. We understand that in the heat of competition it is easy to have emotions get the best of us and social media provides opportunity for immediate sharing of frustration. The reality is that public shaming of the golf course, other players, the platform, payouts etc only hurts your personal brand and future opportunity – it is not worth it. This kind of behavior adversely affects our sponsors, course partnerships and all those who work tirelessly to deliver BEST IN CLASS tournament experiences and financial opportunity for players. We will protect the opportunity we are fortunate to be able to deliver so many, especially in a post covid-19 world where sports landscapes are changing and entire tournament series are disappearing due to the economic hardship. We will take swift action with fines or bans for those who are unable to maturely take their gripe to our team privately and respectfully.

If you appreciate truly having control of your own risk and reward, playing for more than what you bring to the table regardless of field size and experiencing a consistently great tournament set up… Help us protect the opportunity by making sure a few bad apples don’t spoil it for you and others. Some people have a vested interest in making sure support to players is limited, we are aware of this and our response never wavers: We continue on our path, fulfilling our mission to make it easier for anyone to play golf.

Very few people, companies, advertisers and the like are attracted to negativity. People are attracted to enthusiasm, growth and opportunity. The more players we have that are taking advantage of our platform and are sharing online and otherwise about your experience… The more we will be able to do for you.

If you have questions, comments and complaints please address it through proper channels – we are here to serve you.

We are excited about what is ahead for you when you “Play SwingThought”, thank you for respecting the investment that is being made into you and golfers like you by everyone involved publicly and privately with SwingThought.
